Free ice cream

 

 

snip-

Chick-fil-A wants you to put down your cellphone and enjoy a tech-free meal.

The restaurant chain is offering customers in some 150 stores a "Cell Phone Coop," a box for families to ditch their devices while they chow down on waffle fries in-store.

Brad Williams, a Chick-fil-A operator in Suwanee, Georgia, who is responsible for the coop, said that Americans spend an average of 4.7 hours per day on their cellphone.

 

"We really want our restaurant to provide a sense of community for our customers, where family and friends can come together and share quality time with one another," Williams said, in a statement.

Families who are able to go the whole meal without picking up their phones receive a free Chick-fil-A Icedream cone.

Re: Free ice cream

I'd qualify each and every day. I'm not sure I am a "family" in their view however, but I seldom bother with my Iphone.
